Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mb) Network Speed

Ratified by the IEEE standards body in 1999 as copper-cable based extension of the Ethernet standard, Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3-2008), GbE or 1 GigE, has a maximum data rate of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) and uses point-to-point configuration. The original twisted pair cable (1000Base-T) Gigabit Ethernet standard was expanded to include physical Layer standards for using optical fiber (1000Base-X). Gigabit Ethernet can be used as a backbone link or a server connection in enterprise networks.

With Gigabit Ethernet switches, enterprises can build Layer 2 networks for high-performance servers or desktop computers. Gigabit Ethernet switches that support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) are available for connecting IP phones, wireless access points and other high-performance devices. Network administrators can choose from unmanaged switches or those with a built-in simple network management protocol (SNMP) agent for a full range of network performance and management metrics.

Transition Networks’ Gigabit Ethernet Switches are ideal for networks with high-performance servers and desktop computers. Our switches are available in enterprise grades and hardened temperature grades to provide the most flexibility for your network regardless of location. Also, our switches support PoE and PoE+ to allow connectivity and power to be utilized at the edge of the network – saving time and cost. Lastly, our switches are available as unmanaged or managed to provide the best solution for your network. View our Gigabit Ethernet Switches below.
